smoking banstobacco legislation

Cigar bars would be exempt from New Hampshire's smoking ban under a bill on its way to the state Senate.

The House voted without debate Wednesday to exempt businesses that gets at least 60% of their income from the sale of cigars or cigar-related products. The bill also would allow the business to have a liquor license, which under current law also requires the sale of food.

Employees would be required to sign a form acknowledging they understand the dangers of secondhand smoke and choose to work in the cigar bar. Entry would be prohibited to anyone under age 18.

The state banned smoking in bars and restaurants last year. During the debate over the bill, cigar shops tried unsuccessfully to carve out an exception like one approved Wednesday by the House.

Gov. John Lynch said Wednesday he has not seen the proposal and does not know if he would sign it.
